Mourinho Reveals Why He Didn't Celebrate EFL Cup Win

Manchester United lifted the EFL Cup, their first major trophy under Jose Mourinho, on Sunday, but the Portuguese seemed grumpy throughout the trophy ceremony, and he has explained why.
The Portuguese won the prestigious trophy for the fourth time in his career after Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a brace to help his side defeat a resilient Southampton 3-2 at Wembley.
When asked why he wasn't all smiles' after the encounter, Mourinho responded: "It's for them, it's for the fans," he said, as quoted by the Daily Star.
"I take this because I've won it four times. I take this for me. It's the first one plus the Charity Shield.
"For the development of the team, there's nothing better than doing it with the feeling of trophies."
Despite his team lifting the trophy, Mourinho admitted that Southampton were the better side and deserved at least extra-time.
"Now we have the Premier League, Rostov in the Europa League and Chelsea in the FA Cup and lots to prepare for," he added.
"I could feel today the difference in freshness between one team and another one.
"I think if it went to extra-time we'd be in trouble so I had to compact more the team and try and give some stability to the team because the fuel was in their legs – not our legs."
Mourinho joined legendary managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough in winning the EFL Cup four times.
